Jonathan Hirons

I have helped scores of new and established business over more than 20 years. If you are a creative business that needs help to explore new markets and grow, I have considerable experience in accessing both public and private funding and I have written a number of successful bids for clients.

I am currently engaged in helping award-winning Tidy Books http://tidy-books.com, an innovative manufacturer of child-friendly storage, expand their operations into Europe and the US.

I am an experienced business manager with strong commercial and project-leading abilities. Throughout my career I have worked in an environment that demands the highest standards and toughest deadlines. I have considerable experience in managing EU-funded projects within Erasmus+ and previously Leonardo.

My key strengths are change management, strategic vision, people-leadership and innovation. I work alongside public and private funders to provide investment and expertise to the creative business community.
